The season has turned, the spooky names have appeared on twitter, and decorative gourds are on their way. I was in Antibes last week, looking at the fancy yachts. The summer season is winding down on the Med, and within weeks the cruise ships will begin their annual migration, as they head across the A to the Caribbean for winter. Some of the bigger yachts will also join this flock, or will be taken to the Indian Ocean or somewhere else.
I enjoyed this piece on a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean after a rainy walk in the mountain hinterlands. The inevitable American visitors were announcing themselves loudly in Collobrières when we stopped off for the inevitable chestnut-related treats. It’s been the same in Marseille & even in Hyéres. You guys evidently love this part of France in the autumn.
